My wife and I visited our two grandsons living in Washington and the four of us had a perfect dinner in the bar section of the restaurant. We had two first courses and four different main courses, all of which were appreciated. The butternut squash...More

Honestly, this was probably the best meal of my life! We started with champagne and the charcuterie board. For our main course we had the duck and the salmon, I believe. On our second visit we had the duck again and started with the bone...More

My only complaint is the price tag (for what you get) - our waiter was really good - think 'professional waiter'. The meal was quite good. We stayed for a long time because the seating was comfortable and conversation was so great!

While we could only sit in the bar area, we didn’t have a chance to make a reservation, the area was delightful and service was spot on. The food was good, they adjusted for my allergies well, and well presented.

This Michelin Star restaurant is amazing! We invited a group of clients for lunch at the semi-private Chef's Table (accommodates 14-20 guests). The Chef prepared a three course, family-style menu based upon the items received that morning that included: For Appetizer: -Endive Salad with tea...More

Blue Duck Tavern, a contemporary neighborhood restaurant, invites its guests to gather and celebrate in good taste with a menu focusing on the freshest ingredients available from local purveyors and artisans. The menu notes every farm where the main ingredient for the dish was raised before its journey to the table. Dishes are genuine, time-honored and traditional -- slow roasting in wood embers, braising, preserving and smoking techniques bring the true flavors of America's great, simple and wholesome foods to the Blue Duck Tavern. The restaurant has an elegant residential feel through the open staff pantry and kitchen, wood-burning oven and the showpiece Molteni range.
